Dave B 1986

Pretty sure this was my first listening to any version/portion of this show. The quality of the audio and the playing is superlative. Most of time on the archive I am listening to 80s stuff, probably because it was the sound I associate with actually being at shows. Sure glad I clicked on this, though. Band is locked in, Phil booming, and Garcia is just so creative with his leads - its so engaging to listen to him play. Thanks to all those who made it happen.

Great, Great Job
You said in your notes: "You should be able to hear quite a bit of difference."
Damn straight. That is some major, major understatement.
I am just stunned at how much better this sounds. Thank you!
Heck, I like how they were playing through this stretch so much that I listened to the really bass-heavy monster a bunch of times. I like Phil being up in the mix, but that old one was a bit much even for me, and even having gone to Vanderbilt myself. Always seemed a shame; had all the signs of being a really hot show, but it just was difficult to listen to.
It is a real treat to get to hear it the way you cleaned it up. Never figured I would. I bet this took a ton of work. Well spent time and effort I might add -- it's from the fall of 72 and it doesn't get much, if any, better than that.
Many, many thanks for doing it and sharing it.
